This design is effective and feels great in the hand. The blade has a distal taper for balance and excellent edge geometry for perfect cutting. The steel, CPM S30V is considered by many to be the great steel for chef's knives. It is extremely hard and takes on a nice razor edge and holds it.
Not an easy blade design to grind, due to the large surface area and the wear resistance of the cutlery steel, never the less a solid performer. While this one features a Micarta handle, various handle materials options available.
